Ubuntu HowTo: Monitor always starts zoomed in a little

Original Source Link

Whenever I boot up, my monitor’s settings are always zoomed in about at 10, out of a scale of 0-100.

It also happens if I turn my monitor off and on again.

If I change my Display settings to rotate my screen orientation from Landscape to Portrait and back, but not Landscape to Flipped Landscape and back.

And changing the Scale in the Display Settings menu doesn’t mess up the Zoom again, either.

I have a Dell SP2208WFP, and my Monitors.xml looks like:

<monitors version="2">
  <configuration>
    <logicalmonitor>
      <x>0</x>
      <y>0</y>
      <scale>0</scale>
      <primary>yes</primary>
      <monitor>
        <monitorspec>
          <connector>HDMI-A-1</connector>
          <vendor>DEL</vendor>
          <product>SP2208WFP</product>
          <serial>RR268831CT0U</serial>
        </monitorspec>
        <mode>
          <width>1680</width>
          <height>1050</height>
          <rate>59.954250335693359</rate>
        </mode>
      </monitor>
    </logicalmonitor>
  </configuration>
</monitors>

And now, Scale is reset to 1… Because I exited a fullscreen app or something??

It even happens in Recovery Mode, when I don’t have a DISPLAY variable set.
